    One 17x8.5 wheel, BFG 285/70-17 tire - Tacoma

    Hi all, I have a single American Outlaw 17x8.5 wheel (5" BS) that came off a Tacoma with a BFG A/T KO 285/70-17 tire that had about 10 miles on it before it got a screw in it. You can plug or patch it and it would make a great spare tire for a truck or trailer. Located in San Diego, CA (pick...

    1993 Revcon Trailblazer - Project Overhaul

    Thanks for the info. I was checking out the site and realized they are local to me, about 7 miles away. Likely need to swing by and talk with them. Looking forward to more updates. :)

    1993 Revcon Trailblazer - Project Overhaul

    Cool. Couple questions if okay. 1. with the foam insulation, what are you using to glue them in place? 2. did ePlastics indicate any thermal expansion/contractions with using ABS for the interior walls? I have been looking at FRP panels and many of them say to leave an 1/8" gap to allow for...

    1993 Revcon Trailblazer - Project Overhaul

    That is looking awesome!!!! Great work and love how the exterior has turned out. What ABS panels are you using inside and where did you get them? I am getting close to starting the re-panel of my M1010 and have been looking at alternatives to wood products.

    Newbie needs assistance with tire choice for new to me 2020 F550 4x4 Overlander

    No, current stable of Bilstein's are 1999 Jeep Cherokee, 1984 Chevy CUCV M1010 ambulance and 1972 Chevy El Camino. Had them on my 1997 Ram 2500 with FWC popup. Never owned anything as big as a F550 (nor have room for anything that big. LOL)

    Depends on what Bilstein shocks you get. Look at 5160 or 5165 series, they are definitely for off road use. From what I have been reading recently, Fox has gotten too big, too fast in the vehicle shock market and their quality has gone downhill. One report I just read was of a guy who put on...

    How do you eat an elephant, one bite at a time. Keep up the work. It's looking good. I am kind of in the same boat with my M1010 project. Gets hit and miss amounts of time to work on it.

    Bummer about the truck getting hit but thumbs up on fixing the steering.

    Newbie needs assistance with tire choice for new to me 2020 F550 4x4 Overlander

    From what I read, most 19.5" wheel/tire combos are for OTR trucks with very high weight. They are more for supporting the load than ride comfort. I have never used anything in the 19.5 (or big truck world) but my guess is you are going to be fighting a losing battle. Ride comfort from tires...

    Propane through camper/shell wall?

    Looks very nice. Curious, what keeps your water lines from freezing in cold temps?

    Desert Turtle - M1010 Build

    @NevadaLover Thanks. I was guessing something like that.

    Desert Turtle - M1010 Build

    @zoomad75 actually I do have a question you might be able to answer. Since I only got the part you see and never seen one of these fully assembled on a truck, can you tell me what the black bracket at the back of the alt mount (pass. side bracket) is used for?

    Desert Turtle - M1010 Build

    Yep, that's the plan. I have been looking at aftermarket high output alts (likely 175-200 amps) because my solar controller for my lithium house batteries will draw 50 amps (it won't taper off like a FLA or AMG battery) so I want to make sure I am not over taxing the alt, especially at low/idle...

    Desert Turtle - M1010 Build

    Next on the list was to install the intake manifold I picked up off FB marketplace. It had been installed but never ran so basically new for less than half price. Spent too much time scrapping off the old intake gasket but got everything cleaned up. Then I used a Jaz Products port sealing kit...
